An October to Remember


October has been a very fun month! I was fortunate to be able to get tickets to see the Sharks play twice - in mid October I watched the game from a luxury suite and on October 30 I saw a great game where the Sharks beat the Anaheim Ducks. In other local sports news, the San Francisco Giants made it to the World Series! I was not expecting that to happen this season, but after all, "It's Magic Inside," so perhaps that had something to do with it. While baseball isn't my most favorite sport, I have to admit that I've jumped on the bandwagon to cheer for the Giants now that they are in the World Series.
Another highlight this month was my much-anticipated trip to San Diego with my brother, Andy, to see the New England Patriots play the San Diego Chargers. It was a great weekend. We stayed in downtown San Diego at the Omni Hotel which is right next to Petco Park and had an amazing views of the ballpark and surrounding areas. We arrived on Saturday just in time to head to the sports bar and watch the Giants beat Philly and earn a spot in the World Series. Sweet! We were up bright and early on Sunday morning and had breakfast at Maryjane's Coffee Shop located in the Hard Rock Hotel before we headed off to Qualcomm Stadium on the trolley. I was quite surprised how many Patriots fans were there - seemed like half the crowd was cheering for them. We even ended up sitting next to some fellow Pats fans! The game was indeed close, but the Pats managed to hang on at the end and win. We had plenty of time before we needed to get to the airport so we decided to have dinner at Nobu (also located in the Hard Rock Hotel). Hands down, it was the best sushi that I have ever eaten. If you have an opportunity to try it, I highly recommend it.
And what better way to end October than by celebrating my favorite holiday - Halloween. Although I didn't dress up this year, I did wear my adorable Halloween-themed Mickey Mouse ears.

It's hard to believe that it's almost November 1. As always, time is flying by. I'm looking forward to the start of the holiday season and all of the wonderful things that go along with it. I'm already gearing up to start on my holiday crafting projects and you can be sure that I'll be posting some photos on the blog-o, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I'll be cheering for the Giants as they play in the World Series! Wishing you a wonderful week full of smiles. And speaking of smiles, I'll wrap up with this quote:

Life is like a mirror. Smile at it and it smiles back at you.
-Peace Pilgrim
